Public Statements

Release of Aung San Suu Kyi

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement in response to the release of Burma's foremost pro-democracy advocate:

"Aung San Suu Kyi's apparently unconditional release from confinement is the first positive news to come out of Burma in some time. That said, she has been released in the past only to be later detained on trumped-up charges. Whether the regime will tolerate her active participation in public discourse in Burma is the key question. Even if it turns out she is given freedom of movement and speech, her release should be viewed as a first step in Burmese reform and not the last."
